      This was a good deal and super easy to install. Looks just like the factory part. While I was replacing the fan clutch I replaced the hoses and belts.

              This is a powerful fan clutch, I installed it on my 79 camaro and now this fan blows small rocks around. It surely keeps the coolant cooler!

                  A:

                  Hi Snake, good question! This is a thermal fan clutch which engage and disengage according to engine temperatures. It may work without the ac unit however controlling the temperature in your vehicle is a complex process, with many parts working in tandem to get the job done. The fan clutch operates as a liaison of sorts between the radiator, water pump, and engine. Your vehicle needs all the parts in good working condition to keep your vehicle's temperatures properly regulated for optimal performance. Overheating, temperature irregularities in your air conditioning, and leakage are all potential indicators that your fan clutch may need to be replaced.
